    I see there is plenty of science to back him up

    The date of May 21, 2011 may seem random, but it is based on a numerical analysis by Harold Camping, the president of Family Radio, a religious broadcaster based in California.

    "According to Genesis, when the flood occurred in the year 4990, God told Noah that in seven days he would destroy the earth," Manny explained. "And he destroyed it in seven days.

    "But Peter said: 'I know that one day for me is like a thousand years.' So 4990 plus 7001 years (the equivalent of seven days) equals 2011," he explained.

    I don't think that's it. "1 day is like 1000 years" implies all the 1/4 days are counted.
    7 days would be 7000 years - or 7000 years plus 7x 1/4 days at most, not 7001 years.

    If the 1/4 days were not included that would be 1/4 day per year so 7000/4 days = 1750 days which is nearly 5 years, not just 1 extra year.

    It's possible that they are subtracting a year because there was no year 0 - we went from 1BC to 1AD - but that either means it wasn't reported right or somebody didn't understand the calculation.

    Also 4990 + 7001 is not equal to 2011!
    I assume they mean the flood occurred in 4990 BC, which would mean the calculation is actually 7000 - 4990 = 2010 and then add 1 for the skipped year 0, to get to 2011. That might make more sense.

    Well, there is a new date to put in your diary.

    maybe the old codger will pop his clogs before predicting the 3rd attemp at rapture

    I predict 3,482 pigs will fly over my house on November 16th 2011....

    Well, if he's allowed to predict such **** then lets all do it

    Let's hope our last summer is a good one! oO

    This is the best bit:

    Meanwhile, enterprising atheists across 26 states have set up a business … Meanwhile, enterprising atheists across 26 states have set up a business to care for the animal companions of any Christians who are selected to go to heaven when Jesus Christ comes back"You've committed your life to Jesus. You know you're saved. But when the Rapture comes, what's to become of your loving pets who are left behind?" Eternal Earth-Bound Pets says on its website, offering to "take that burden off your mind."The post-doomsday pet rescue service already has 259 clients, who have paid $135 for the first pet and $20 for each additional pet at the same address, to ensure the faithful animal companions are looked after and loved even when their Christian owners have gone to the other side.All the rescuers are sworn atheists, which means they will definitely be left behind on Earth, ready to rescue pets after the Rapture.When judgment day happens, Eternal Earth-Bound Pets co-founder Bart Centre "will notify all of our rescuers to go into action and they will drive to the homes of anyone who's signed a contract with us, pick up their pets and take them home and adopt them as their own, keeping them happy and healthy for the rest of their lives."This will happen only if and when the Rapture happens. So we do not expect to have to do anything on Saturday," Centre told AFP.Contracts are good for 10 years, just in case the Mayan calendar prophesy, which predicts the world will end in December next year, comes true.
